Could someone confirm that this is still an issue?

Is this still the case? In the mean time we have added code to support the EWMH, which should result in some of our windows being excluded from the task bar.
Could you please retest?

In the Gnome panel, there is one entry for each window and panel. That resuls in 5 windows for the Gorm.app for example. Would it be possible to omit at least the NSPanel windows from being included in the panel?

This is probably rather a change request, however, I file it as "usability bug".
